Tree Wave - Cabana EP [os034]


Published


One man's obsolete computer trash is another man's treasure. Especially if that other man is Paul Slocum. With Tree Wave, Paul and vocalist Lauren Gray take familiar 80's electronics and use them to create indisputably original and remarkably warm music. Instruments include an Atari 2600, a Commodore 64, a 286 luggable PC, and an Epson dot matrix printer, all reprogrammed as sound generators. In live shows, the Atari 2600 works double-duty as an hypnotic image projector.

Treewave's experimental-pop has brought them attention from the visual arts community, msnbc.com, NPR and Wired. They have performed at art galleries and night clubs in New York, Seattle, Austin, and their hometown, Dallas.

Well worth a listen, would be stupendous live I bet. Will be looking for more of this band for sure. Just trying to figure out what tags to use for my library with this :) The melodies..... the vocals, I'm impressed.

Distinctly powerful sounds with soothing vocals to top it off. Set 'Sleep' to repeat.

A really great release with a lot of emotion in it,very clever-placed sounds and nice vocals,the relaxing trip I needed before a party,it creates good mood when there isn't any.
